Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 2.7.2 is under review by the TSC and likely to be released.
  • Tests were made on making reproducibility the default for poky. There were several issues found for which bugs were filed:
    • A double free issue in opkg (Alejandro looking into, thanks)
    • devtool failures (Paul sent a fix, thanks)
    • recipetool failures (Richard sent a fix)
  • Tests were made on making the hashserver default for poky. There were also several issues found and RP is trying to understand and work through those. At least one critical issue has been identified and due to be tested.
  • The SWAT team no longer has enough people on it to make it sustainable and has therefore been disbanded. This means build owners need to triage their own build failures. Richard will be responsible for failures in the scheduled master builds.
  • Intermittent build failures continue to hamper builds, particularly combined with the above issues and as few people are available to attempt to debug and resolve them.
  • The TSC is working on LTS plans, productive discussions have been had and a new policy on handling this and stable releases should be available in the next couple of weeks.
  • We are continuing to collect ideas for YP 3.1 in this document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UKZIGe88-eq3-pOPtkAvFAegbQDzhy_f4ye64yjnABc/edit?usp=sharing
  • If anyone has any status items for the project they’d like to add to the weekly reports, please email Richard and Stephen.
